Congrats winners! I really did love all of the cakes. I just wish I could eat them all now :) The chocolate surprise one looked especially tasty.

Heather Justesen said...

I admit, I was seriously impressed by Kayla's cake because I could never freehand that tree so well. Funny how all of the ideas that crossed my mind didn't include the obvious one!

I also want to know how the silver statues were made.

All of the cakes were great and everyone deserves kudos for their work (And I'm SO going to do that color change thing like in the chocolate surprise cake someday!)

Kayla said...

How exciting! I've never really decorated a cake before so I'm actually surprised!

*Wipes a tear* I'd like to take a moment to thank a few people...
I'd like to thank Bree Despain for writing an awesome book!
Debbie for having a fantastic blog that hosted this contest!
The people of for providing the frosting recipe, and last, but not least...
The makers of Ziplock for providing my "decorating bag" since I'm too cheap to buy real ones! :)

How fun! I am the worst cake decorator ever, but I thought about entering. Then I realized I'd just embarrass myself. :)

Kayla - you rock girl!
I'm craving chocolate now, I think I'll go have a bowl of Cocoa Krispies.
